Cockburn Gazette - - RESIDENTIA­L -

THEY say a man's home is his cas­tle and Chateaux la Quilla cer­tainly has a ma­jes­tic pres­ence.

The unique res­i­dence was a labour of love for the orig­i­nal own­ers, who trav­elled the world to find spe­cial pieces for the home, such as the hand-made Moroc­can tiles in the mas­ter bed­room's en­suite. It was love at first sight for the cur­rent own­ers. “We were look­ing to move from a small, old home in a good lo­ca­tion on the river and saw this beau­ti­ful and amaz­ing home on the in­ter­net,” they said.

“We re­alised it had great prox­im­ity to all the things we loved, such as the ocean and river, and what we needed, such as easy walk­ing dis­tance to pub­lic trans­port, both buses and trains, for the kids.

“When we in­spected the home there was no go­ing back.”

The house has stone and tim­ber fea­tures and won­der­ful be­spoke fin­ishes, in­clud­ing solid tim­ber doors, dome and cof­fered ceil­ings, arched win­dows with tim­ber shut­ters, and wrought iron de­tail­ing.

It is as func­tional as it is beau­ti­ful and has been a won­der­ful home for the fam­ily.

The lay­out in­cludes mul­ti­ple liv­ing ar­eas, a the­atre room, oc­tag­o­nal study and an enor­mous kitchen.

A vine-draped al­fresco area with nearby bar­be­cue kitchen is a won­der­ful place to en­ter­tain and the tur­ret and deck area offer other op­por­tu­ni­ties to wow fam­ily and friends or sim­ply en­joy some quiet time. The own­ers said it had an out­stand­ing view. There are four bed­rooms and three bath­rooms. The home is for sale by open ne­go­ti­a­tions, with fi­nal bid­ding tak­ing place on Novem­ber 2.
